Zimbabwe govt warns opposition over victory claims

Reuters: "HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe's opposition said on Sunday it had won the most crucial election since independence but President Robert Mugabe's government warned its opponents that premature victory claims would amount to an attempted coup.
Tendai Biti, secretary general of the main MDC opposition party, told diplomats and observers overnight that early results posted at polling stations showed the MDC was victorious. 'We have won this election, we have won this election,' he said."
